Michelle Perkett Challenge #29 - Lets Get Distressed!
I don't usually do distressed cards, because it breaks my heart to make them look, well, "old", but that was the challenge for this week, and the design team did an amazing job!
I used Goldilocks, a real cutie, and a generous freebie from Michelle - thank you!!
I used soft purples for my colors. For the distressing I used coredinations paper, that I embossed with Cuttlebug folders "D'Vine Swirls, and Stylized Flowers". Then I sanded them to show the core color, and get the distressed look. I also sanded the edges of the paper. Once I cut out the image (spellbinders oval nestie), I used Tim Holtz distress ink - dusty concord around the edges. Then I layered her on green Bazzill card stock cut with the spellbinders scalloped oval nestie. The flowers are Prima mini roses. The ribbon and button are from my stash. The lace beneath the ribbon was cut with the Martha Stewart border punch.
For an added little touch, I gave Goldilocks a pearl necklace.. Hope you like my "distressing", and thanks for stopping by.
